Yasra Rizvi was criticized over her ‘Haq Meher’ and the ‘age difference’ issue which still prevails in our culture.

Yasra Rizvi took to Facebook to give her views:

Her fans all over the world took this as a positive sign, but some people resorted to strong criticism and stated that Namaz is an obligation, not a means of financial security.

Yasra Rizvi then took onto her official Facebook page again to state this:

Yasra stated in her recorded message that she was happy there was debate on the ‘age difference’ issue between a wife and husband in Pakistan.

She quoted, “A lot of people stated that I am doing something different, just because I want to grab attention. I want to say to all those people that everyone is different, and everyone is unique. I don’t need to be different, as we all already are. About Haq Meher being Namaz-e-Fajr, a lot of people criticised that it is obligatory, and it does not provide security to the woman like finance. I think prayer is Allah’s blessing upon us. Mehr is to protect a woman, and I think my protector is my husband. My protection is that he prays, and I know he will keep me protected with his prayers. I don’t take religion as a joke, and I have my own journey. I strive towards making myself a better person than I once was. I don’t understand if I am trying to set an example of a simple wedding, what problem do people have with it? This is no one’s issue. Are we really only worth commenting on other people’s lives?”

Her last question left a lot to the mind, and we are sure people loved hearing her side of the story.

Way to go, Yasra! We are more in love with you now.
